Echuca warms up this winter with its riverside Blues Festival

Music lovers can battle the winter blues at the Echuca-Moama Winter Blues Festival taking place from 26 – 28 July.

Vistors from across the country will gather in the historic Port of Echuca’s heritage precinct to enjoy more than 40 blues and roots performances over one rhythmic weekend. Fans can see artists such as Broderick Smith, Fiona Boyes and Blue Eyes Cry perform at iconic venues including Oscar W’s, The American Hotel, Ceres Restaurant and on-board the houseboat P.S. Emmylou.

Located only two and a half hours drive from Melbourne, Echuca is renowned for its historic precinct, pristine golf courses and of course the mighty Murray River. Those looking to stay overnight can choose from a range of charming bed and breakfasts in town and surrounding areas including Pericoota Station, Cadel Bed and Breakfast and Tindarra Resort.
